Candace L. Dyer, MD, is a board-certified general surgeon who has practiced at Kent Hospital since completing her surgical training at Brown in 1985. She received her undergraduate degrees at Duke University and her medical degree at Brown University.

She is a partner at West Bay Surgical Associates and a member of Affinity Physicians. Her practice includes evaluation and surgical treatment of major and minor general surgical problems; including those related to endocrine (thyroid and parathyroid), GI (gallbladder, stomach, small and large intestine), hernia, skin and breast. She also performs upper and lower endoscopies (colonoscopies) for screening and diagnosis. Dr. Dyer devotes approximately half of her time to general surgery and the other half to breast surgery.

In 2010 as physician director, she helped inaugurate the Breast Health Center at Kent, the first collaborative effort between Kent and Women & Infants hospitals, which has been a great success. She is extremely fortunate to have a dedicated staff in the BHC, all of whom really "run the show."

Long before Dr. Dyer became a clinical faculty member at the University of New England Osteopathic School of Medicine, she was a clinical professor at Brown Medical School serving as a mentor to numerous first and second year medical students, which is ongoing. She is a past president of the Rhode Island Medical Society, a former director of NORCAL Mutual Insurance Company, and currently sits on the board of the Toll Gate Indemnity Company.

As a native of Warwick, whose first job was at Kent Hospital as a teenager, Dr. Dyer has witnessed the transformation of Kent from a small community hospital to a major teaching institution that now provides state-of-the-art care to the residents of central Rhode Island and she is pleased to have played a small role in this transformation, which continues.
